The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Completed: it was so much pleasing!
The portrait I like the most here is Mr. Eli Wallach's, but I believe Mr. Lee Van Cleef and Mr. Clint Eastwood are also good.
This drawing has been made using 6 Derwent pastels.

New Update

First update of my new drawing. Mr Eli Wallach, playing the role of the Ugly character, half completed.
This new technique is quite interesting and I like so very much the way a face appears little by little from the empty sheet... almost like magic.

New Work In Progress

This is going to be my next drawing. It is inspired by "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" movie poster. I'll try a new technique using 5 pencils.
For a long time I regretted the purchasing of this yellow old like paper block, but lately I found how to use it for good. Indeed it is the best suited paper to draw on with sanguine, charcoal and even felt tip pens. So lately I'm quite happy I have it.
I have been quite worried these days of late for I couldn't find any inspiring picture to draw or paint of, even though I have tons, none of them "called" for a drawing.
Well, with this sketch I hope I broke this awfully poor inspired period. Tomorrow morning I see if I need to improve this sketch and then start to work on it.

Old Friends

This time I paint a zero Km  picture. Usually I search the web for inspirational shots, well this time I painted a shot of mine. I took this picture in Urbino city while walking towards ducal palace. I was walking when almost without my full awareness I stopped and walked back few meters to find this scene which touched deeply my heart and inspiration. An old man and an old dog walking through the shadows of an archway towards the light ahead.
I almost lost my chance to shot this wonderful picture for I had to pick up my phone, turn it on and shot a photograph.
It touched very much my heart... I still miss you brother, how are you? Are you doing fine?

Once Upon A Time In The West

So this ends my Mr Charles Bronson sanguine portrait. This drawing has been a real pleasure indeed!

Mr Charles Sketch

This evening I was searching pictures to draw in ink pen and found this one I had forgotten of. So instead of ink pen drawing I'm going to make it in sanguine and white pencils. Maybe I'll try to darken the shadows using a little graphite too, like I saw in my Burne Hogarth books, not sure though.
The original picture has been taken from the movie Once upon a time in the west by Sergio Leone, great movie!

Lady Of The Storm

Tonight I felt the need to complete my drawing. Also this one has been made using colored pencils and ink.
It shows a priestess who command thunder and storm  on a sea still quiet from the top of his rock pillar.
Better not make her angry.
